Speaker: Adam Liptak
Adam Liptak covers the Supreme Court for The New York Times. His column on legal affairs, “Sidebar,” appears every other Tuesday.
A graduate of Yale College and Yale Law School, Liptak worked during law school as a summer clerk in The New York Times Company’s legal department. After graduating, he spent four years at Cahill Gordon & Reindel, a large New York City law firm, as a litigation associate specializing in First Amendment matters.
Liptak returned to The Times’ legal department in 1992, spending a decade advising The Times and the company’s other newspapers, television stations and new media properties on defamation, privacy, newsgathering and related issues, and he frequently litigated media and commercial cases.
Liptak joined the paper’s news staff in 2002. He was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in explanatory reporting in 2009 for “American Exception,” a series of articles examining ways in which the American legal system differs from those of other developed nations. He received the 2010 Scripps Howard Award for Washington reporting for a five-part series on the Roberts Court.
Liptak has written several law review articles, generally on First Amendment topics. He was awarded Hofstra University’s Presidential Medal and an honorary doctorate from Stetson University College of Law. He is a visiting lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School and has taught courses on media law and the Supreme Court at Columbia University, University of California, Los Angeles, University of Southern California and Yale.
